Soil Supply FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right soil supplier for your job

1. What are the uses of soil in construction?

Soil is considered one of the essential components in creating a structure’s firm and robust foundation. There are different types of soil and each type can affect a structure’s foundation differently. While soil is easily accessible, it is best to identify which type of soil is most appropriate for your project to prevent the risk of creating a weak structure and promote an efficient construction process.

 

2. What are the different types of soil used in construction?

There are several different types of soil that are generally used in construction. Each type of soil varies in strength, appearance, price and quality. Identifying these types of soil can give you an idea of which soil to use for your project. The different types of soil include:

Clay Clay soil is not usually recommended by experts due to its properties. Clay tends to dry or moisten overtime which can potentially damage a building’s foundation by causing cracks and fissures. This being said, deeper soil depths can help increase the foundation’s stability.

Silt Silt is typically smooth to touch and holds water for long periods due to the soil’s smaller particles. Depending on the project, soil suppliers do not recommend silt as it tends to be cold and drains water poorly. This causes the soil to expand - stressing and weakening the foundation overtime.

Loam Loam is a highly recommended type of soil for construction. This is due to the material’s balanced properties that help maintain the structural integrity, as well as help maintain water at a balanced rate.

Various Types of Stones Soil consists of different stones such as limestone, bedrock, sandstone, shale and hard chalk, which have high bearing capacities. The angular shape of the stones are designed to fill every gap, providing better stability to construction projects.

 

3. How does soil affect construction?

Soil can make or break a construction project. This is one of the main reasons why engineers and other professionals examine the soil before the construction process commences to ensure structural stability. During analysis, landscape architects review and assess the land planning, current building codes and ordinances, construction specifications, grading and stormwater management in addition to sustainability.

Soil is vulnerable to erosion, so the stability of soil tends to become weaker as the construction process goes on. To help prevent any problems caused by erosion, it is ideal to limit the space where the soil is moved around during excavation.

 

4. How to determine the soil quality?

The quality of soil used in construction is different from the quality of soil used in gardens and other agriculture-related projects. Garden soil is heavily filled with organic matter which is beneficial for plant growth. Garden soil is also best when compact to help maintain water at a balanced rate.

On the other hand, construction soil is tested to indicate its stability for any construction projects. Construction soil is usually firm and robust to help strengthen a building’s structural integrity.

 

5. How expensive is soil?

The price of soil changes depending on the quantity and quality of the soil. On average, the price of bulk soil is approximately $713, including delivery. Total costs can range between $320 and $1,107 depending on the amount of soil needed as well as the delivery fee.
